Review by The_Slothelot

The_Slothelot Im curious as to why this show is so poorly rated. The first set is nothing extremely special compared to other November and December shows in '97, but it is flawlessly played. The stand out are the Julius opener, the SOAMelt, and the Jim is top notch funk.
This second set is awesome. The axilla>simple is amazing. Some beautiful type 2 space on the simple. The feedback does not interfere with the show what so ever, and does not effect an incredible ghost form occurring.
The drowned was a typical jammed out drowned, good but not incredible.
The SOAMule jam was awesome! the round about teases are great!
There are some really great jammed halleys from '97, this is not one of them. This one isnt bad but cant hold a candle to some of them like, hampton.

All in all, this is a very solid show. As i said before, It's flawlessly played, but at times just a little typical. In the 2 month span of nov-december 97, the boys played some of their most memorable shows. They cant all the auburn hill, hampton or the nutter, right?
